X-Light Adze Axe


2 items left

The newest addition to the CASSIN X-Team, the X-Light features the same sleek designsåÊand quality forged components as the popular X-Dream, but with a shaft that makes it theåÊmost suitable axe for low-angle terrain typical of light and fast technical ascents. ThreeåÊdifferent head configurations (pick & adze, pick & hammer, pick only) allow the tool toåÊbe optimized for the objective. The single-curve shaft is optimized with the angle of theåÊpick for solid performance on technical ice and for use as a cane. Carabiner holes at theåÊhead and spike accommodate traditional leashes or lanyards. For steep ice climbing, it isåÊpossible to change the standard X-Alp grip with the X-Dry grip and spike. The X-TriggeråÊFast pommel (included) is adjustable without tools. The hammer and adze componentsåÊhave been shaped for a comfortable grip and the pick does not have teeth near the shaftåÊto further increase comfort and help prevent wear and tear on gloves.
